Experiencing Turbulence Art copy 4.jpg


An old soul in a 21st century body, Penn Johnson is raising vibrations by weaving mysterious virtue through lyrical storytelling. With a deep reverence for nature and mind/body meditation, he travels across the US living a minimalist plant-based vanlife performing intimate campfire concerts and playing live music for yoga amidst other gigs and spontaneous destination hunting. Traveling over 100,000 miles in the last year alone, Penn has shared the stage with Desert Dwellers, Nathan Feinstein (Iya Terra), Treehouse!, Sun-Dried Vibes, Joey Harkum (Pasadena), Brandon Hardesty (Bumpin Uglies), and One Tribe Movement at festivals such as South Florida Folk Festival, The March Against Monsanto, and Surrounded By The Sound. His sound is best described as danceable spoken word with poetic vocals and percussive strumming. His latest record Experiencing Turbulence includes songs like 'Another Year,' an anthem about 'opening our minds to forgiveness' and 'Not Here To Argue,' explaining Penn is here to tell stories and 'then take his leave.' Penn's newest unreleased material is a spiritual sage-bomb shedding light into the dark forests of consciousness and illuminating a more harmonious life.

Penn posts exclusive music videos, #vanlife videos, other content weekly on his Patreon page. Learn more about his journey by clicking below.
